Thomas County Cat: Commodore PayD came to Colby with lung trouble, reduced in flesh and feeling badly, and weighing only 95 pounds. He has been here nearly five months and has. gained his health wonderfully, weighing at this time 137 pounds. Colby can be rated as a first class sanitarium. Lyman Stillson, a lad fourteen years old, was playing with some other boys in Gregg Bros.' elevator at Seneca, Neo sho county, and jumped into & wheat bin; a car was loading at the time and young Stillson was caught in a spout and suffocated under the moving wheat. The dead body was recovered after two hours. Chetopa Advance: A few nights ago a Bad accident occurred at the home of Mr T.' J. Calvin. His little three year-old daughter was lying on the floor asleep, near a table on which stood a lamp. The little boys, in playing around the table accidentiallv knocked the lamp off, when it exploded, setting fire to the little girl's J clothing, and before the names could De extinguished she was badly burned. The Lawrence Plow company has made an assignment for the benefit of its cred itorsto Nathan Henshaw. The com pany was organized in 1880, with a paid up capital of $4,400. The hard timeB and the depression in the value of real estate and personal property, belonging to the company, and its many losses in the wholesale and retail trade have made this step necessary. The liabilities are about $30,000, and the available assets not definitely known, though they are said to be amply sufficient to pay all just claims, and a fair percentage on the capital stock if the business is properly managed. La Cygne Journal: A colored boy aged 15 or 16, living at Lane, this coun ty, waB bothered by mosquitoes at night, and con co ted a scheme to get rid of them so he could sleep. He built a small fire under his "bunk," thinking the smoke would orive away the mosquitoes. After building the fire, he wrapped himself up in the sneet and prepared to sleep. By some means his red caught fire, and the boy being so tight woundup in the sheet, could not extricate himself, ' and, al though his cries brought help, his bed and clothing even the shirt on his back were consumed and the boy so badly burned that he will die. Caldwell Journal: The bridge contrac tor who has the contract for putting in the twenty-two small bridges between here and Fort Reno, on the military road, is at work on several of them now. The timbers for the Pole Cat, Cottonwood and Wild Horse creek bridges went down last week. They will all be completed in the next sixtv days. It will take from $50,000 to $100,000 to complete the sys tem, which amount will be asked for from congress the coming winter. It is very probable that it will be granted now, since the war department has charge of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians and their agency. Osage City Free Press: David Griffith, the twelve year old son of a well known Panteg farmer came to his death the other day in this way: He and a comrade were loading some things into a wagon out of a house that had been occupied by work hands during corn plowing time. The first thing put in was a loaded shot gun. It was laid on the bottom of the wagon. The hind end gate was out of the wagon. The un fortunate young man next threw an ax into the wagon. The ax struck the hammer of the gun which went off send- ing the load of shot into and through the boy's stomach. An effort was made to carry him home, but he was taken into a neighbor's house and died at about the hour above named. Fort Scott Herald: The other day Her man Shaffer, a lad of ten years, Bon of John Shaffer, attempted to light a fire in the stove with coal oil. The result was n explosion, scattering the burning oil all over the poor little fellow, setting fire to his clothes and burning his flesh in many places to a criBp, hie left arm be ing cooked clear to the bone. After the explosion the little hero crawled to the kitchen door calling for help. His cries attracted the attention of William Dex ter, who seeing the burning boy, dashed a bucket of water on him, extinguishing the flames, and tore from his body the clothes that still hugged his quivering flesh. The can containing the oil was completely demolished, not a piece of it but was separated from its fellow. His recovery is doubtful, nd he now lies in tne most terrible agony. The examination before United States Commissioner L. P. Webb, at WinfiVd, of Dr. J. S.Crabtree, assistant postmaster at New Salem, charged with burning the Salem postoffice building, fixtures,letters, etc, closed with an acquital. The prose cution was shown to be prompted by professional jealousy. Dr. Downs was the prosecuting witness. That the fire was incendiary is evident, but just who set it can't be fastened in the eyes of the law, only in the minds of the people. Dr. Crabtree showed himself to be with out a stain.

Payne, the auctioneer, sold about thirty-five head of mixed cattle under the hammer on the street last Saturday at prices that ranged from $25 to $35 per head. Last year the eame cattle would have sold for from $35 to $50, but the above prices are considered good for this year. Abilene Gazette: The first shipment Holstein cattle ever brought to this citj arrived last week. There are eighteei head, and the property of J. H. Barton, o Williams county, Ohio, whohaspui chased a ranch thirteen miles south of the city. He will devote his attention exclusively to the above named breed, and has no doubt of his success in so do ing. Emporia News: T. W. Kitchen has a wonderful red Irish setter. A few days ago he disappeared one afternoon from Emporia. The next morning he turned up at Canton, McPherson county, the dog's old home,90 miles west of this city. When that dog makes up his mind to visit old associates he does not stand on the idea of his going, but simply goes for all there is in him. Peabody Graphic: We have been fa vored with an examination of the American Shorthorn herd book just published. It is a magnificent book. We are exceedingly pleased to see the hundreds of high bred cattle that are registered from Kansas, many of them from our own county Marion and some from the region of Peabodv. All success, we say, to Peabody breeders; they greatly honor our part of. the state abroad. Junction City Union: Charley Murphy tells us that in a rise of the Smoky Hill a few weeks ago fully four hundred dead hogs floated by his place. It seems to us that farmers living along a stream ought to be mutually interested in sup pressing this outrage. There iB an un usual and general fatality among hogs all through this region, and especially so on bottom farms, and who knows but that this praitice is responsible for the whole of it. Murphy burned his dead hogs, and' he is getting out of patience with a class of farmers who load the streams with carcasses spreading disease along their whole length.

He loves good stock, and will keep no other if he can help it. His stallions have been a source of vast income to him the present season, and the colts from his horses always give the best of satisfaction and command admi ration and high prices wherever put on tne market, and are a source of consid erable income from the premiums they command at fairs and general exhibi tions of such stock. Wichita Eagle: "How are your hogs?" said one farmer to .another at the poet office yesterday. "Well, I had some sick and I took them away from the water and mud and since then they are all right. Some say that a hog is all right, rolling in water and mud, but it is a mis take. Now there is Howard, who has his hogs on the creek and about twenty have died." "Yes," said another, who came up and ioined in the conversation, "hogs must be kept away from the creeks." "All the hogs along the Cow skin are sick," said another. "Martison's took it first and several died and from his it has spread all along the creek." "Every man has his own cure for hogs,'' said another. "Now, I took calomel and mixed it in a mash of chop stuff and gave it to the sick hogs and they were all right next day.

TEC TENDER BEX Items of Interest pertaining to them. Oberlin Eye: A lady near Mr. Ray mond's has 3,000 heads of fine growing abbage. One of the most successful .institutes in the state is that of Neosho county, conducted by Miss Hoxie. A young looking woman left a twe months old baby at a hotel in Asherville, Mitchell county, and deserted it. The wife of a prominent citizen of Wichita was attacked on the streets, and but for timely assistance would have been robbed or outraged. Holton Signal: Last week the people o Vjor town were startled by the repor that Dr. A. & Hatch had eloped with hi hired girl, Christina Thompson. One morning Dr. Hatch started for Sabetha, telling his wife that he would not return until Sunday. He has not been seen since the day of his departure. Several letters from the runaway couple have been received by their relatives, telling them that an attempt to find them would prove unsuccessful, and advising them not to spend money unnecessarily in an attempt to bring them back, and that they would never return to Whiting if found. Before leaving Hatch settled all his business affairs, paid his bills and deeded all his real estate to Mrs. Hatch and her two children. As to his motive for leaving, all is in the dark. It was gen erally known that Hatch was a firm be liever in free love, and it is thought by some, that crazed by studying over this, his favorite theme, he forsook his family in a fit of insanity; but the majority of the people believe that it was his "pure cussedness" which provoked him to com mit the act Mrs. Hatch is very low and at one time her life was despaired of, caused by her grief over her husband's strange actions. The two families who have thus lost one of their numbers have the sympathy of the entire community. NOTABLE SAYINGS. A Few Quotations irom Grants Speeches. Addresses, Letters, Etc.

The humblest soldier who carried a musket is entitled to as much credit for the results of the war as those who were in command. Speech at Hamburg, 1878. With a people as honest and as proud as the Americans and with so much com mon sense it is always a mistake to do a thing not entirely eight for the sake of expediency. Although a soldier by education and profession I have never felt any sort of fondness for war, and I have never ad vocated it except as a means of piece. Speech in London, 1877. No theory of my own will ever stand in the was of my execu tin g,in good faith, any order I may receive from those in authority over me. Letter to Secretary Chase, July 1863.

If our country could be saved or ruined by the efforts of one man we should not have a country, and we should not now be celebrating our Fourth of July. Speech at Hamburg, 1868. There had to be an end to slavery. Then we were fighting an enemy with whom we could not make a peace. We had to destroy him. No convention, no treaty, was possible, only destruction. Peace and universal prosperity, its se quence, with economy of administration, will lighten the burden of taxation,while it certainly reduces the national debt. Let us have peace. Letter accepting nomination, 1868. We are a republic whereof one man is as good as another before the law. Under such a form of government it is of the greatest importance that all should be possessed of education and intelligence enough to cast a vote with a right under standing of its meaning. Annual mes sage, 1871. To protect the national honor every dollar of the government indebtedness should be paid in gold, unless otherwise specially stipulated in the contract. Let it be understood that no repudiation of one farthing of our public debt will be trusted in places. Inaugural address, 1869. I feel no inclination to retaliate for the offenses of irresponsiable persons, but if it is the policy of any general en trusted with the command of troops to show no quarter or to punish with death prisoners taken in battle, I will accept the issue. Letter to Confeder ate GenfSuckner, 1863. The truth is, I am more of a farmer than a soldier. I take little or no in terest in military affairs, and although I entered the army thirty-five years ago, and have been in two wars, in Mexico as a young lieutenant, and later, I never went into the army without regret and never returned without pleasure, I shall on all subjects have a policy to recommend, none to enforce against the will of the people. Laws are to govern all alike those opposed to as well as those in favor of them. I know no method to secure the repeal of bad or obnoxious laws so. effectual as their strict execution. Innaugural address, 1869. I am not one of those who cry out against the republic and charge it with being ungrateful. I am sure that an re gards the American people as a nation and as individuals, I have every reason under the sun, if any person really has, to be satisfied with their treatment of me.

The president of the chamber of com merce in his remarks has alluded to the personal friendship existing between the two nations.

A health journal says that people ought to take three-quarters of an hour for din aer. . This is well if there is enough din ner to hold out so long. The penalty for hurrying meals, as most people do, is a grievous attack of dyspepsia. In such a case you will have to resort to Brown's Iron Bitters for cure, as did Mr. J. B. Pinkston, Shortens Depot, Ala., who writes, "I found relief in Brown's Iron Bitters after years of suffering from dys pepsia." JEFF DAVIS ON A SOUR APPLE TBKF. How the Famous Sons; Had its Origin in the Army. Winchester Argus. A few days ago we saw in the Leaven worth Times a clipping from an eastern paper giving the authorship of We'll hang Jeff Davia on a sour app'e tree to a Leavenworth boy. Knowing that George A. Huron, now a prominent at torney in Topeka, formerly probate judge of this county, was the author, we sent him the clipping and received the following reply: Topeka, Ksnsas, May 7, 1885. Lon W. Robinson, Editor Argus Dear Sir. In answer to yours of the 30th ult, inclos ing clipping relating to the authorship o the lines of the "John Brown Body" song We'll hang Jeff Davis, on a sour apple tree as we go marcuing on. I have to say that while I do not regard the authorship as important to the world as even that of "Beautiful Snow," yet, ince you have asked me, I must contra dict the statement that they originated with a Leavenworth or any other news boy. The verse was first sung by myself, at the time a soldier in brave old Jimmy Shields division in the Shenandoah val ley, near New Market, Va., in the spring of 1862. We were at the time pushing "Stonewall Jackson" up the valley to Harrisburg, had cheered the weariness of an all-night march through rain and mud singing "John Brown's Body" until the words seemed as badly worn out as the tired troops. Our brigade had halt ed at the roadside and were hastily boil ing coilee for their ecant breakfast, while in the column still tramping by a tired soldier here and there wearily continued the refrain: While his eouI goes marching on When suddenly an old ditty I heard when a boy about A sick monkey on a sour apple tree Came into my mind, and I remarked to my chum, "let us give John Brown a rest." He said, "how will you do it?" I replied singing: We'll hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree When rapidly as sound could travel the words were caught up, and in a few mo ments ahield&'di vision was singing them. The Graphic is not the firat to charac terize the lines as "coarse and half-brutal," for, after his little episode in skirts, while Jeff Davis and family were guests of the nation at Fortress Monroe, I re member to have Been a published copy of a letter from Mrs. Davis, in win en she complained bitterly of the brutality of the Yankee soldiers, who had taught her youngest child (I think she ' called him "little Jeff") to "sing the coarse words," and said the little innocent never seem ed so happy as when singing: We'll hang Jeff Davis on a sour apple tree in the neighborhood of his father's cell. At this distance it is not surprising that the line grates harshly on fastidious ears, but then it was not constructed for use in a drawing room. In fact, there was no special thought in its 'construction; it was one of those things which simply drops into a niche and fits, and if the thousands of soldiers who on the weary march were invigorated by the impas sioned words are not ashamed for hav ing sung them neither am I ashamed for having originated tbem.

The peach, which formally flourished as well in Pennsylvania and New York as is Delaware, has proved unprofitable of late years, owing to the yellows. The borer has done great damage, but the borer can be prevented if the trees are carefully watched. It has been demon strated that the yellows is the result of exhaustion of the soil not that the soil necessarily becomes sterile, but that the elements essential to the healthy growth of the tree and production of fruit have not been supplied. As a proof ot this fact it may be mentioned that in some sections of New Jersey the fruit growers -5 1-.V SHOP. v. ''M , - frr STREET A p.

The sac cess of the Delaware peach growers is due to their adoption ot all the advan tages necesssry to success and the avoidance of the mistakes committed elsewhere. Artificial fertilizers have dune much to prevent diseases to fruit trees, as by their use the growers can supply the needed requirements in any form and quantity desired of the essential ele ments, which is not the case when re liance is placed exclusively upon barn yard manure, which, by its decomposi tion in the soil, sometimes induces the disease which it is sought to prevent. The yellowd attacks peach trees in any climate, but singles out those that are impoverished and. of the feeble growth, inuugn ic is coniagious wnen orougnt in contact with healthy trees.
